Three Pitfalls To Avoid When Writing Your Online Dating Profile
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Knowing how to do something in order to accomplish the best result is important. But that isn't enough in itself; it doesn't stop there. It's also extremely important to know what you should NOT do, what mistakes to avoid. One of the best approaches to reach that goal is finding out just what errors others have made so you can steer clear of making those very same errors.

That is particularly true for writing successful online dating profiles. Lots of people steer clear of the mistakes and succeed. You need to be one of these.

Three of the most prevalent mistakes that folks make with writing online dating profiles are listed below:

Number 1. Inappropriate profile photos.

You will find this important since your profile photo is the first things people see when browsing your profile. In order to avoid this issue you will need to make sure your photos are current and flattering. Don't use photos where you can clearly see that you have cropped out your ex! Beware of the image you are sending if your photo has you looking glassy eyed with a drink in each hand. Also, people are interested in dating you, not your kids or your pets. Make sure that you have some profile pictures with no one else in them. Make sure that there is at least one good head shot where people can see you without your sunglasses or (guys, please!) a baseball cap.

Secondly, don't use cliched "headlines" on your dating profile.

Getting this right is essential because the headline is also one of the first things people see when looking at your profile. What you must do to avoid this mistake is to try and be original. All those "diamonds in the rough" actually turn into a pile of rubble! Try using a song lyric that you like. For example "crash into me" or "all that I'm after is a life full of laughter, as long as I'm laughing with you"..

Last but not least, make sure you have someone proof read your profile description.

People run into trouble when they have misspellings in their profiles that make you seem uneducated, or too rushed and didn't care about what you wrote. This can be avoided by asking a good friend to give you an honest opinion on what you have written in your profile.

Learn these online dating profiles errors and very carefully avoid them. If you can keep these tips in mind you will then be assured of much better results when putting togther your online dating profile. And a great profile is the first step to online dating success.
